June activities for kids

June is usually a lovely month for us. The weather should be getting better and better. Hopefully, we’ll have lots of outdoor adventures this month. Below are some of my posts that are most relevant for this month. Keep popping back for more seasonal activities to do with your kids this month. Better yet scroll to the bottom and join me for my weekly bonus email full of seasonal content straight to your inbox.

June in the garden

June is another busy month in the garden. You can start to plant out the plants you have raised from seeds indoors like courgette and cucumbers. You can continue to sow direct carrots, beetroots and lettuce.  You might even be able to start harvesting some crops by the end of the month. I discovered a really great resource, a gardening calendar with what to plant and harvest each month and it even has different colours for southern or northern (UK) gardeners – available here.

I have a few blog posts that you might find useful and a few more planned for this month.




June is also a great time for spending more time outdoors with children. Playing in the garden, walking in the woods, visiting the beach or your favourite outdoor day out. You could even join in with #30dayswild.


June on the bookshelves


There are so many spring themes in children’s books. Farm animals, bugs and butterflies, spring and much more. If you’re looking for inspiration then click the image below for a post I wrote last spring.




If you have a child starting school this September you may be starting to think about preparing them or perhaps you want to find out what to expect.

June ideas for creating and playing


There are lots of opportunities for craft and play in spring. Both indoors and outdoors. Possible themes are weather, butterflies, bugs, farm animals, birds and seaside.




You might also find my father’s day gift guide useful this month.
